North House Folk School: Craft of Sail⁠ ⁠- Grand Marais, MN

Jun 13, 2021 | events/locations

Teaching traditional northern crafts that inspire the hands, the heart and the mind. On the shores of Lake Superior in Grand Marais, MN.

North House Folk School: Spend a day aboard the Hjørdis and learn the basics of sailing a 50’ gaff-rigged schooner on Lake Superior. This course offers a mix of in-class preparation and on-the-water experience: topics include points of sail, seamanship, rope-work, sailing terminology, and boat handling technique. Wind, weather, and waves vary greatly on Lake Superior, and students will take an active part in evaluating the prevailing conditions; the sailing experience will be tailored accordingly. No prior experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn and get out on the water.⁠
There are three great opportunities to take this 1-day class at North House this Summer: 6/20, 7/18, and 8/22⁠. ⁠Follow the Course Calendar link to learn more and register⁠!
